This one’s a creepy mur­der mys­tery. Set in 1981 in a fic­ti­tious ho­tel called The Hen­don, this im­mer­sive, in­ter­ac­tive per­for­mance in­vites vic­tims – ahem, par­tic­i­pants – to ex­plore the haunted space in groups af­ter a guest goes miss­ing. Visi­tors must move from room to room, in­ter­ro­gat­ing sus­pects to iden­tify the cul­prit.

Raintr33 Ho­tel 33 Hen­don Rd. Noon-1am. $42-$48.


Oct 29-31

Writ­ten and di­rected by The Fin­ger Play­ers, Seed made its de­but in Tokyo and is now staged in Sin­ga­pore for the first time.

Set in a world where the line be­tween the phys­i­cal and the spir­i­tual is blurred, the play fol­lows the sto­ries of a seem­ingly un­re­lated group of peo­ple: a widow who dines with her dead hus­band, a woman who leaves food for her lost cat that gets eaten by some­thing else, and a mother who teaches her daugh­ter how to pre­pare a fi­nal meal. All they have in com­mon is the tragedies that they have faced.

SOTA Drama Theatre 8pm. $35-$45.

The de­tailed line-up for this fam­ily-friendly event is yet to be con­firmed at press time, but we’ve been told that visi­tors can ex­pect to catch a range of per­for­mances and ac­tiv­i­ties inspired by arte­facts at the mu­seum.

There are also gallery tours – dur­ing which mu­seum staff will re­gale tales of hor­ror – as well as more hands-on sec­tions where lit­tle ones can make their own spooky sou­venirs to take home.

Asian Civil­i­sa­tions Mu­seum 7pm-late.

The best-dressed ghouls, mum­mies and zom­bies that come in their spooky fin­ery will win prizes at the meal.

In this 5K race, run for your lives – or risk be­ing clawed down by the zom­bies chas­ing af­ter you.

But no wor­ries, there won’t be any dis­em­bow­elling at the fin­ish line. The un­dead are in­stead af­ter ‘life cards’, which are given to the par­tic­i­pants be­fore the race.

Make it out in one piece, and you can celebrate at the post-race party. And be warned – the zom­bie army has mul­ti­plied ten­fold since last year’s event. Not a lot of info has been re­leased at the time of print, so check www.racethedead. sg for de­tails.
